Stupid

How many times have you said or done something which makes you feel really stupid? You don’t actually need to answer that question, as I suspect, if you’re anything like me, you’ll have been in that situation more times than you want to remember!

Think about the situation where you felt the most stupid…now think about Noah and how he must have felt being told to go and build an ark because great flood were coming, when all seemed calm and no sign of rain never mind the floods which God told him were coming!

What faith Noah had to trust God that the floods were coming, is your faith that strong?

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last few months, and today, it’s time for another one. So as usual I’m going to throw some words at you  and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

So here goes…

  1. wordsSunburn
  2. Nature
  3. Language
  4. Suit
  5. Heater
  6. Lunch
  7. Weekend
  8. Disney
  9. Customers
  10. Noah

So how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. Ouch!
  2. God
  3. English
  4. Work
  5. Nice and warm
  6. Soup
  7. Over too quickly
  8. Tigger
  9. Service
  10. Ark

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of my answers confuse you? Did any of your own answers confuse you?

I’ve said in previous word association posts that I find I get a bit stressed when I’m doing them as I put a lot of pressure on myself not to over think my answers! Are you relaxed when you do them or do you find it stressful too?

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

God made

Adam bit

Noah arked

Abraham split

Moses balked

Pharaoh plagued
